It usually takes a few weeks to identify the true bargain players - those unexpected goal-getters or under-estimated individuals who strike a rich vein of form early on in the season.

However, there are still a few relatively cheap options to consider adding to your team and GOAL is here with some of the best bargain players to include in your FPL team this season.

Carlton Morris (Luton Town)

Luton Town's promotion push last season was driven in huge part by the efforts of Carlton Morris, who scored 20 goals and laid on a further seven for his team-mates in the Championship.

It goes without saying that there is a huge step up in quality in the Premier League and those figures may be hard to replicate at the top table, but at £5.5m Morris is worth considering as a cheap striker option.

Pascal Gross (Brighton)

Pascal Gross has seen his FPL price-tag creep up in the past few seasons, but he is still relatively cheap at £6.5m this year.

The German utility player has precision aim from set-pieces and his point haul of 159 was higher than that of players such as Heung-min Son, Leandro Trossard, Phil Foden and James Maddison, all of whom are more expensive.

Regardless of where he plays on the pitch, Gross is usually good for his fair share of goals and assists.

Connor Roberts (Burnley)

Wales international Connor Roberts scored four goals and provided six assists for Burnley from right-back last season and is worth considering if you want to pick a defender under £5m who might score some points.

Gabriel (Arsenal)

Arsenal centre-back Gabriel scored an impressive 146 points in each of the last two seasons and he is one of the cheaper Gunners defenders at £5m.

The Brazilian is a formidable asset from set-pieces, but his presence at the back was key in securing 14 clean sheets last term.

Elijah Adebayo (Luton Town)

His strike partner Morris scored more goals last term, but Elijah Adebayo was still a formidable presence for Luton Town and could surprise a few people in the Premier League.

The forward costs £5m and has been pretty consistent for his club over the past few seasons. He was involved in 13 goals in the Championship in 2022-23 (eight goals, five assists) and the year before that he scored 16 himself, laying on another four for his team-mates.

Eberechi Eze (Crystal Palace)

Crystal Palace's main man Eberechi Eze is primed to lead the Eagles into the new season, having enjoyed his best personal campaign last term.

He scored 10 goals and got five assists in a season where he amassed 159 points in fantasy football. At £6.5m, he is a cheaper option than more vaunted players at bigger clubs, despite scoring better last year.

Aleksandar Mitrovic (Fulham)

Were it not for the eight-match ban he received for pushing a referee, Aleksandar Mitrovic would have scored many more goals for Fulham - and more points in FPL.

The big Serbia international still netted 14 goals in 24 Premier League appearances, as well as getting two assists. Crucially, too, he is a penalty taker.

Mitrovic will no doubt be determined to better that tally in 2023-24 and he is much cheaper than the other top-end attackers at £7.5m. However, you will have to be prepared for the odd yellow card!

Morgan Gibbs-White (Nottingham Forest)

Morgan Gibbs-White was something of a one-man band for Nottingham Forest last season as they managed to retain their Premier League status.

The midfielder scored five goals and notched 12 assists, doing reasonably well on the Bonus Points System too. He is priced at £6m in FPL this season, but it will be worth it if he outscores Jack Grealish, James Maddison et al again.

Andreas Pereira (Fulham)

Fulham's Brazilian playmaker Andreas Pereira is still only priced at £5.5m in FPL, despite being the club's chief set-piece taker and piling up the points last season.

The former Manchester United midfielder got four goals and 10 assists for the Craven Cottage outfit last term and will be a key player once again for Marco Silva's side.

Joao Pedro (Brighton)

Brighton forked out a club record fee to bring Joao Pedro to the Amex and the Brazilian is expected to be a key feature for the club this season.

The former Watford forward is still relatively young at 21 and, while he has not lit up scoring charts in his short career so far, big things are expected of him.

Pedro scored 11 goals in the Championship last season and can be picked for £5.5m in FPL.
